A blog header is an important part of blog real estate. It should say something about your blog , your brand and your style. It is the first thing that readers see and so it should be treated with care.
In this post I will introduce you to some blog posts that will teach you  about making, styling, and installing a blog header on Blogger.

Hire it Done:

If you are more the kind who wants to hire someone else to take care of the details then you can find some awesome designers on Etsy who will sell you a blog header (and more) and even install it if needed. You can also google Blog designers and find 1000's of designers online.

Hopefully you have found some useful information here about blog headers. The links that I shared are some of my favorite spots for information on blogging.
